Men Already in Business Find it a
Manufacturers of concrete products, supply dealers, lum-
ber dealers, coal dealers, contractors and builders, sand
and gravel companies— and innumerable other men in
business find it surprisingly profitable to make these prod-
ucts as a side-line. In this way men are kept busy dur-
ing off-seasons when work is slack on the regular line.
The problem of keeping men continuously occupied and
producing a profit is thus solved.
In many instances the making of these products carries
the entire overhead expense of the regular business be-
sides earning a profit. In other instances, this side-line
has proven more profitable than the main business.

The UTILITY Adjustable 0. G. Cornice Mold
The blocks made by this mold are used extensively in practic-
ally all building operations. Then, too, it is the right kind of a
unit for any work of an ornamental nature, such as on porches,
posts, piers, chimney tops, etc.
You really have a hundred different molds because it will
make over 100 different sizes. No job need
ever be turned down no matter what dimen-
sions are called for.
The range in length and width is from 4 to
24 inches. The height is 6 inches. The top is

preserving good proportions. The porch de-

The UTILITY Adjustable All-Steel Cap, Sill and Step Mold
The fact that this mold will make every conceivable size
or dimension stone from 2 to 24 inches wide and 2 to 72
inches long, is reason enough why this mold is so profit-
able to use. The blocks are absolutely true in all dimen-
sions and are used for caps, sills and steps, lintels, porch
railings, bases and innumerable other ways. It is, in
truth, a hundred molds in one.
This is an all-steel mold; the plates have
absolutely no spring and tamping will not
force them out of alignment. This is a
highly important factor when accuracy in
line and dimensions is essential. A wooden
mold would cost as much and not be any-
where near as satisfactory.
The mold is quickly set up because it is

position by special heavy malleable clamps

The Simple Way to Cash-In on the Steadily Increasing Demand
for Good Concrete Brick
Most men directly connected with the building industry
have long understood and appreciated the various big ad-
vantages of concrete brick. Within the last few years the
general public also has become greatly interested. As
the result there is today a big demand. Equally important
from your point of view, the demand continues to grow
day by day.
Concrete brick are dense, durable, attractive and more
economical than clay or pressed brick. But the only way
to manufacture them profitably is to make them in quanti-
ties. This does not necessarily
mean that you have to go to the
expense of getting a high-priced
power machine. You can start in
a very profitable line with the
UTILITY One Man Brick Machine
which (making ten standard size
brick at each operation) will turn
out per day, 2,000 standard brick
of any desired face.
This method produces brick with an exceptionally dura-
ble and attractive facing. The results are much better
than with other methods. Users of this machine find their
product in popular demand because of its good quality.
The outfit includes a stamping die to make an attractive
rock-faced brick. It also includes a mold for making
The accessories are as follows:
The UTILITY is the only ma-
chine which allows the brick to be
removed and set down to harden
without turning over. This means

Durable All-Steel Construction
The UTILITY Brick Machine is made of steel. It is a
strong and rugged machine, thoroughly braced to stand
severe service. It will last a lifetime. It is light and ex-
ceptionally easy to handle.
Simplicity of Operation
There is a set of ten molds, separated by heavy, cold-
drawn steel dividing plates which are moved back and
forth by a two-handled lever. A removable hopper is
located on top for filling. This also smooths off the top
of the brick after tamping.
The wet procc is used because it makes the strongest,
densest and most attractive brick. A wet mixture is
poured into the hopper, so that it flows over the molds to
a depth of about half an inch. A semi-dry mixture is then
added and tamped, absorbing the excess of water and pro-
ducing a smooth, dense surface. The whole set of ten
bricks are started, finished and carried away on the same
wooden pallet without turning over. There is no chance
of cracking or chipping the brick.

Simplicity of construction for utmost strength; sim-

keynotes of the entire Utility line* Especially is this true
of the UTILITY Stripper Block Machine.
Of all the hand block machines on the market, none can
equal the UTILITY Machine for sturdy construction or
ease of operation. It is a marvel of simplified efficiency.
The UTILITY Machine operates on the stripper prin-
ciple. The block is forced off the core by pressing a foot
lever and then, still surrounded and protected by the mold,
it is carried to the place where it is to harden. Then the
mold is easily and quickly removed, and you are ready to
make the next block.
Because of this simplified operation, one man can turn
out 150 blocks per day.

The UTILITY Hand Tile Machine
Drain tile made of good concrete are far
superior to any other kind of tile. There
are any number of proofs to support this
assertion. To convince yourself you need
only look at an exposed pile of clay tile and
see how it has disintegrated, chipped and
peeled off. Then look at a pile of concrete
tile. Every one perfect, and better than
the day they were made. The fact is, con-
crete tile improve with age and exposure,
elements that play havoc with the clay
Concrete drain tile would be used in
preference to clay tile even if they cost
more. But they cost less. And that's why
you will find such a large market for thi
product. Remember, too, that every job
calls for large quantities of tile. Your
earnings are therefore of big amount.
The only reliable way to make concrete
drain tile is by using the principle of the
revolving packer head. The thin walls do
not permit of tamping. The UTILITY
Tile Machine makes the tile the right waj
— the only way for perfect results.
A Marvel of Simplicity
Again you see the keynote of the Utility Line exempli-
fied in the UTILITY Tile Machine. Simplicity. Set it up
anywhere, against a building or a wall or a post. Anyone
can operate it and secure the best kind of tile. Place the
casing on the platform under the hopper. Put in some
concrete. Turn the packer head up through the casing,
and the concrete is packed so hard that the casing can be
removed at once. No pallets are needed. It is a machine
built rugged to stand any amount of hard use. Absolute-
ly practical and efficient. Nothing whatever complicated
in the machine or in the operation.

engineers. That's why you will want to use UTILITY
The most expensive machines cannot produce more per-
fect pipe than UTILITY Molds. And yet these molds are
so simple to operate and so inexpensive. Your UTILITY
Pipe, for sewers and culverts, will meet every require-
ment as to quality and dimensions; your prices will meet
all competition and yield a splendid profit.
There are only a few parts to a UTILITY Pipe Making
Outfit. The outer form or casing, of heavy sheet steel
rigidly reinforced, is in two sections. That's the scientific,
easy-to-operate way of having them. The inner casing or
core, also of heavy sheet steel, works mechanically. A few
simple accessories like pallets, rings, cone and hopper com-
plete the outfit. All exceedingly simple and sturdy enough
for a. lifetime of nrofitable service.
Low Costs — Big
Because the more ex-
pensive clay pipe set the
price standard for sewer
pipe, you can make this
product at an attractive
profit with UTILITY Molds.
A twelve-inch pipe, for ex-
ample, calls for only 26
cents worth of cement,
sand and gravel. The aver-
age price for this size is
60 cents per foot. In other
words, you sell the two-
foot 26-cent pipe for $1.20.
The larger the size, the
greater the profit.
Simplified One-Man Operation
The simple ease with which UTILITY Molds operate will
enable you to make a variety of sizes in large quantities.
One man or three or more can be at work at the same
time, producing good pipe most economically. All that
needs to be done is to set up the forms, fill with concrete,
tamp, remove the molds. After ten days the pipe is ready
to be delivered to the job. You cannot find a simpler meth-
od, nor one that produces higher grade pipe conforming to
all specifications. All because UTILITY Molds are de-
signed to do their work quickly, easily, efficiently and
perfectly at the lowest cost.

n lly an outfit and consists of the two-piece outer casing of
heavily reinforced steel, the patented mechanical steel core, a
11-forming head, cone and hopper. The pipe rests on a metal
allet called the Bottom Ring. You should have more than one
